I've seen many florals in my time, but I don't think I've ever seen one with a chainlink fence before; it celebrates the geometry and beauty of everyday life in the city and adds some visual interest to the repeating floral motif. I love prints that are a little different or feature a twist on traditional motifs, and this one does exactly that. I could wax poetic about the way this print contrasts the organic florals with the more structured lines of the human-made fencing, but you're probably more curious about the fabric than about my opinions on the use of juxtaposition in design.
This is midweight (leaning towards heavier) cotton/linen blend; it washes up very nicely and softens with wear. It would be wonderful in warmer months, but I think it would also do well for layering pieces during transitional seasons. It feels stiff off the bolt but loosens and drapes wonderfully after washing.
The background on this is white, not blinding white but a soft white.

Fabric is priced and sold by the 1/4 metre. We cut multiple 1/4 metres continuously. For example; 2 units is 1/2m, 3 units is 3/4m, 4 units is a full metre, 5 units is 1.25m. A single 1/4 metre will be cut as a fat quarter, unless you request a skinny quarter. Fat Quarters are half the width of the fabric x 0.5m, whereas Skinny Quarters are the full width of the fabric x 0.25m. We do this so you can order just as much fabric as you need, to decrease fabric wastage.
